The “hidden” IaaS Capability

Oracle is moving fast in the IaaS world.

I’ve been using the Oracle Cloud IaaS service for quite some time now.  I spin up various forms of OEL or Ubuntu and deploy applications on top.

But did you know there are many ways to spin up common platforms on top of IaaS with no installation required?  Bitnami is one option, but there is a “hidden” menu item that few people know about and I want to share that with you now.

 

When you login to your IaaS console and create a new instance, you will see three menu items along the left side:

The “Marketplace” menu item has a huge number of templates available to choose from including Microsoft Windows 2008/2012 server.Selection_583.jpg

This list has grown rapidly and is a wonderful way to leverage the Oracle IaaS platform.
